Research: Number Theory


SERMON is a small, friendly, and informal gathering of number theorists and combinatorialists. Faculty members, graduate students, and undergraduate students are all invited to attend, and to give talks if they wish. The first SERMON took place at UNC Greensboro in 1988. Since then it has taken place every year at various universities in the southeast.

See the home page for the SouthEast Regional Meeting On Numbers for more general information on SERMON and to subscribe to the SERMON e-mail list.

In 2019 SERMON will be held at the University of North Carolina Greensboro (UNCG) Saturday April 13 and Sunday April 14, 2019.
